A Saint Patrick’s Day Vegan Feast
I should warn you, if you’re anti-carbs you should probably stop reading this post now. You’ll probably gain weight just from reading this (kidding, kidding)! I’m not sure that there was really much Irish about this vegan feast other than it including potatoes, bread, and “meat”. I meant to include some greens, but while I was preparing the meal I realized that I was out, and I really didn’t want to get to the store with all of those drunk Irish-wannabes out on the roads (okay, maybe I was just being lazy). For the big meal I made lentil loaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, and “cheddar cheese” bread. We were completely stuffed, but it was so worth it! Below is my lentil loaf recipe, and the mashed potatoes and bread will be up soon. Hope everyone is having a great Saint Patrick’s Day!
“Cheesy” Lentil Loaf
- 1 lb lentils, cooked
- 10 oz package vegan dry stuffing mix
- 2 small while onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon vegan butter
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon egg replacer whisked with 4 tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup vegan cheddar shreds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Saute chopped onions in vegan butter. Allow to cool. In large bowl, combine cooked lentils, stuffing mix, sauteed onions, ketchup, and prepared egg replacer until well-mixed. If dry, add 1/4 cup water. In a 13 x 9 pan, form into a loaf so that it is not touching sides. Top off with extra ketchup if desired. Bake for 35 minutes and top with cheddar shreds. Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
